I am just curious as to why people need to, or choose wanting to believe in, follow, and participate in any religious affiliation? What drive people to believe in their religions? Is it simply because of tradition, upbringing, or an actual spiritual connection that is hard for some of us to logically rationalize?

Am I simply nothing as a human just because I can not logically, or rationally believe in mystical fear mongering hocus pocus routines and their unverifiable results?
"how an individual can live and face this daily life, with all of its challenges and not have a strong faith?" quoting you whonunuwho..
My answer to that? Very Easily Indeed!
And yes, we can still love and be loved without religion. Imagine that!
Critical..imagine what life would be like if all thought as you and there was no religious beliefs or social, cultural, and respectful society an everyone wanted to rule the earth. There would be many kings and few subjects.A short lived civilization

Peeples?, that is exactly where my concern is.
I personally believe in myself above anything and everything else.
Can I rightfully expect to be believed by anybody at anytime for anything if I do not beleive in myself, above all else?
No, I can't
are we talking about a believe in general or believe to any religion? as you said i do believe in self but not so much into any religion. many religious people tell me its for guidance, makes me wonder what their gps is like without being religious
Believing in a 'Rat' gives me reason and purpose...
You asked why people believe in religion and I told you why some people believe in religion. I don't know why people won't stop believing in a religion.I do know it's their freedom to believe whatever they want. No proof there is or isn't a god.
Yet out of 5 answers provided... Nobody specificly addresses the question definitively... Why so we need to?, or why do we choose to follow any religion? What actually drives our need for religion?
"What actually drives our need for religion?" We are very controllable. In my opinion we were put on this earth or created, to be slaves. Our only purpose is to run everything for the elite. Watch Ancient Aliens. I could be wrong though.
I believe that the beliefs provided by 'lburmaster' in this stream are those of the fanatical believer. Their reasons do not need to make sense, and that comes off as concerning to say the least.
Perhaps we gather with folks to see and listen if we can find some one who can logically articulate our true personal experience, though in the listening, and perhaps in a desperate need to hear the right words, we confuse other words to be discribin
